HUH??!!! CARMELLO ANTHONY BEING TRADED TO THE LAKERS...DNT COUNT ON IT
The Lakers and Carmelo Anthony? Wouldn't count on it.
An ESPN report that the Lakers were in preliminary talks with Denver for the Nuggets' unhappy all-star forward was quickly rebuffed by the Lakers.
"What's out there is inaccurate," said a Lakers representative familiar with the negotiations.
The report said the deal would revolve around Bynum for Anthony, though a team source told The Times on Tuesday that the Lakers were unwilling to deal Bynum, the 23-year-old center who has been plagued by knee problems.
Bynum is considered the personal project of Lakers executive Jim Buss, the son of team owner Jerry Buss.
